Framing Britney Spears: How to watch the documentary about pop star’s ongoing conservatorship battle

Framing Britney Spears was released on 5 February as part of the first season of The New York Times Presents… series. 

The programme analyses the treatment of Spears by the media from the beginning of her career to now, but particularly during her mental health breakdowns in 2008, when she was placed under a conservatorship.

The documentary then looks at the pop star’s ongoing battle with her father, Jamie Spears, over the control the conservatorship gives him over every aspect of her life, from her business decisions to her family.

In November 2020, Britney requested to have her father removed as conservator, however, the court rejected her attempt.

In the episode, it is noted that Spears herself was sent a request to take part in the documentary. However, the production team don’t know whether she received the requests. Her mother, father and sister “didn’t respond” or “declined requests” to partake in Framing Britney.

After the documentary aired in the US, the #FreeBritney hashtag – a fan movement to get her conservatorship ended – trended once again on social media.

How can I watch the documentary?

In the US, Framing Britney Spears is available to watch online via streaming service Hulu – new subscribers can redeem a free month when they sign up. After the free trial, Hulu costs $5.99 (£4.37) per month.

PopSugar reports that Framing Britney Spears is set to air in the UK during spring 2021. An official release date has yet to be confirmed.
